Sandbach & District u3a AGM

Notice of our forthcoming AGM should have arrived in your inbox last week. Please do review the papers and vote online if possible. This saves a lot of paper and the counting and checking of votes is done automatically which saves a lot of time for committee members!

Members Morning

Our next Members Morning is on January 9th from 10.00 at Sandbach Town Hall and will be “A show and a talk with a mix of songs and stories. – The Life and Legacy of Ol’ Blue Eyes”


Members Trips

There are still places available for the trip to Boundary Mill on 13 Feb 2023. Cost £14, including driver gratuity. Please contact Alice on 01270765856 for details, or to book a place.

So that’s it for 2022, apart from sending all our members the warmest of wishes for a Happy Christmas and our thanks to our Group Leaders for another successful year. u3a wouldn’t exist without you!
